WIPocalypse Check-in and Stitch from my Stash Splurge Weekend

WIPocalypse is sponsored by Measi and is a SAL where we stitch on 10 Projects throughout the year and report our progress on the New moon of every month. The February Check-in falls on today - VALENTINE'S day.

First, I want to give a shout out to my DH who has been taking care of me through a few medical scares recently. I couldn't' ask for a better husband then the one I have and I feel he needs to know that and see it in print.

next the topic for today's check in:
How many projects do you generally feel comfortable having in progress at one time? Tell us about your one-at-a-time or rotation habits.

Generally, I like to have 1 large, 1 medium and a few smalls in progress for cross stitch projects. I am also a knitter, crocheter and quilter so i have those projects in progress as well. For example, I have 2 blankets cast on in knitting, 1 pair of socks, 1 set of wristlets, 2 dish rags, and a shawl. I have 2 sets of placements, 1 quilt top, and 2 table runners in progress in quilting. Finally, I have one crocheted hat on the hook. I like variety but I do keep a running list of projects as well. I do the same for my wish list and supply inventory.

Now for my Progress on WIPocalypse projects: Due to the emergency room visits for a few medical issues, I have not stitched as much as I would have liked. Sitting was very painful, but I did manage some progress on the following.

1.) Autumn Mandala:
January Check in

February check in
2.) When you wish upon a star:
January Check-in

February Check-in
Hopefully this weekend I can get the Autumn Mandala finished and possibly the baby blanket I cast on for a friend who is pregnant with a little girl.

I am also taking part in Stich from my Stash sponsored by Mel at Epic stitching. This weekend is a splurge weekend where we have 100 US dollars to spend on whatever we want with no strings attached. Thank you MEL!

I placed an order for a few Patterns off my wish list (just realized the one on here is not updated :(, so i will do that sometime in the next few days):

  1. 99 - Ink Circles
  2. Landmarks of America - Stoney Creek
  3. Landmarks around the World - Stoney Creek
  4. Let's Have Fun with Warn - Imaginating
  5. Let's Do Wine - Imaginating
  6. Bubbles - Imaginating
  7. Let's Cross Stitch - Imaginating
  8. Let's Party - Imaginating
I spent 55.62…so I have some more left to spend this weekend when I go out with my mom.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
